About me

I am a Counsellor and 'Creative cognitive behavioural therapist'. I have worked within GP surgeries, NHS, Youth enquiry Service and Cruse bereavement care. I have been recently working for the NHS for the last eight years working with clients who experience anxiety and depression and related issues. I love my work and aim to create a trusting atmosphere for clients to explore emotions, thoughts and feelings in a safe environment. I encourage clients to work at their own pace with no pressure or expectation from me enabling them to move forward in their own time.

Creative Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

My Services

Throughout my work with clients I like the experience to flow through the client working at their pace and understanding of themselves. No one therapy fits all and my clients will experience the most suitable therapy to suit their individual needs. This will be recommended collaboratively together.

Working with Creative Cognitive behavioural therapy opens up different perspectives of experience for example, creative writing, relaxation techniques, mindfulness, use of art materials. This enables the client to explore untapped thoughts feelings and emotions in a therapeutic way.

Traditional CBT is also delivered, which involves a client being responsible for own outcome supported by myself therapeutically. Such as participating in home work and trying out coping strategies at home within their own environment. This produces positive outcomes.

Counselling

Counselling is a talking therapy which is non judgemental and confidential and enables the client to start to unravel past and present difficulties, through dialogue with the therapist. Looking at your world as you see it now, understanding past events which have lead you to your current position. Through talking the client starts to explore their world bringing them a new insight and understanding towards accepting who they are.

I believe everyone is unique and are able to find their own way through difficulties and innately know what they really need to do.

Areas covered by both treatments are -

Anxiety - panic attacks, phobias, obsessive compulsive disorder, Generalized anxiety disorder, overthinking, procrastinating, sleep problems, irritability, nausea.

Depression - Low motivation, concentration, sleep problems, feeling sad, hopelessness, helpless, low self esteem, feeling tearful, guilt ridden, intolerant, indecisiveness and lack of enjoyment in life.
